Aloha. I am excited and grateful to announce the publication of my debut memoir. This book tells the true story of how keeping toxic secrets can poison your mind and how searching and finding the truth can heal the body mind and soul.
At the lowest point in my life, I was a prisoner in my own home trying to raise my four children from a box in a closet, so confused and scared to live any semblance of a rational life. I also carried around my pain as sixty extra pounds on my body. My journey to health and wellness although raw and gritty is also inspiring, mysterious and even funny. The core of my story shows two women who struggle with mental illness, a mother and daughter, and how one survives and one couldn’t.
Recovering from a mental illness is very possible but those who suffer are stigmatized and face obstacles and prejudice. My great hope and gift in writing this book is to help people who have anxiety disorders believe there is hope and a Zen for them as there was for me.
Thank you to my friends old and new around the world who believed in my passion to tell my truth... A special thank you to my family, publisher and the students who made me laugh and look at the world through new eyes.
